Movin’ on over! I don’t pretend to think you’re excited by the prospect of a new website, but one can only assume we felt it necessary to upgrade for a reason…
The July Record Raid went so well I think we’ll just do it all over. Siberia and Hi-Ho are back onboard and AllWays Lounge, right across the street wants to join in. Same as last time:
November 12th Noon-6pm
2200 block of St. Claude Ave, New Orleans
Free and open to the public
Looking at more vendors and more music! See the contact page if you’d like to vend
While the Ponderosa Stomp is a record collectors’ type of concert series, this blog is concerned with Record Fairs in New Orleans. That means the 3rd Annual Ponderosa Stomp Record Fair!
These are slightly different than the Record Raids (and have been around just a little longer!). Vinyl only! $5 admission! But due to the national draw of the event, there are vendors you won’t find at the Record Raid and merchandise aimed at higher-ticket customers. Particularly aimed at rhythm and blues, funk, rock & roll, garage, and psych nuts.
2 days! Friday & Saturday the 16th and 17th at 11am to 5pm, likely different vendors on each day. The good stuff’ll go quick so get there early! Stay around for the rest of the Ponderosa Stomp activities
Previous years were at the Cabildo, this year you can check it out at the Renaissance Arts Hotel lobby
Aw jeez, where was I writing this post? Especially after it ABSOLUTELY RULED. Things were a little slow getting started due to a mix-up and it could have been better lit, but most vendors agreed that this was the most lucrative ever. Perhaps it was the Marigny crowd, maybe it was the promotion Siberia (and I guess I) put in, but there wasn’t a dull moment in either Siberia or the Hi-Ho. Thanks to everybody that helped and came out, more coming! Possibly at the same locations. But let me take a quick side-step!
